The department of justice/fbi/dea/etc wish lists have been published/leaked with a suitable google search. Port mirroring may not be considered sufficient. I think the EFF is missing the important part of the wish list items. The wish list items aren't for wiretaps, but defining as many things as possible as "non-content." Its important for network operators because they will end up doing a lot more work digging through packets for non-content information, and important for lawyers because it lessens the legal requirements for non-content information. What is the "expectation of privacy" of non-content information?
